It's got a little corrosion on the outside of it, and could use cleaned up. Had it for a few years, been sitting under some tarps. The input shaft is nice and tight. Have no idea how it shifts, never had it in a car but was told it came from a trustworthy source. Was going in my '96 outback but I wrecked it back in December. Fits 90-99 Legacies Imprezas and Foresters. Don't know what year Foresters but definitely first bodystyle. Just now deciding I'm sticking with EA81s as long as I can find them fairly rust free. I gave $1300 for this trans, got it from a member of the ultimatesubaru site. I'm asking $1000 obo.
